A couple of updates

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

As of today, i hear that Twitter are no longer delivering text messages to UK mobile numbers (and i think other parts of Europe are being excluded too). This means if you rely on Twitter to deliver your chores each day, i’m afraid that will no longer work, until Twitter draw up a new contract [...]

Time zone issues

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

Time zone stuff really confuses me. It doesn’t help that the server is hosted in Central America whilst i’m in England. I’m never quite sure which way to move the offset.
If you joined MyChores in the last few hours or if you saved your profile since the update earlier today, you may have some issues [...]

OpenID and email still not working

Friday, April 11th, 2008

I am very sorry about this. HostingRails are working on it, but they are not providing the helpful service that i had come to trust. I guess they are fixing a lot of problems for a lot of people after the restore. We will have to be patient a little longer.

Everything not quite right just yet

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

Emails are not being sent correctly and OpenID is not working.
Unfortunately they are quite major things, i realise. I have asked HostingRails to look into it. Very sorry for the inconvenience, especially to our OpenID users who will be unable to log in just now.

Huge apologies for major downtime

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

I am so sorry for the downtime that has been ongoing for more than 24 hours. Whilst this journal is recovered, the actual MyChores site is not yet back. I feel awful about this; i know there are people who rely on MyChores on a daily basis. All i can do is apologise.
I switched to [...]

Fake spam emails

Thursday, March 27th, 2008

It has come to my attention that some low-life piece of scum is sending out spam emails making them look as if they came from MyChores. These emails absolutely categorically did not come from MyChores. I am disgusted at the motives of whoever is doing this - doing their dirty work under cover and tarnishing [...]

Some email changes

Monday, March 17th, 2008

The Yahoo block has prompted me to make some important changes to MyChores and emails.
For a long time i have required email addresses to be verified before MyChores sent any emails. Once verified, however, i assumed that everyone wants daily emails. As from tonight, new people will be able to specify exactly what they want [...]

Email issues

Monday, March 17th, 2008

We are having some problem delivering emails, particularly to Yahoo addresses this time. I am in contact with Yahoo to get this resolved as soon as possible.
Apologies for any inconvenience in the meantime.

Escalation update

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

I thought about this problem vaguely at the back of my mind all afternoon, and as i was walking home, the answer came to me! I am sure it is to do with time zones and daylight saving. MyChores is not clever enough to understand daylight saving … or rather, i am not clever enough [...]

Escalation actions not happening

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

I am sorry to say that escalation actions are not working at the moment. When a task is missed, there are options to increase importance or skip it to next time. Neither of these are currently happening.
At the moment i do not know why, though i suspect it may have something to do with USA [...]
